When you are looking for a cafe POS system, there are a few things that you will wish to think about, just to make your job a little bit easier. In this post, we want to take a look at what makes a quality Cafe POS System.
Our Cafe POS System is suitable for busy cafes and takeaways for faster service and order taking.
Primarily, the software needs to be designed for use in a cafe. This may seem obvious to you, but you will be surprised at how many products out there are not really designed with a cafe operation in mind. Sure, you may be able to tailor the system somewhat to ensure that it can work with a cafe, but in an ideal world, the system is going to be ready to go ‘right out of the box’.
In addition to this, you may wish to consider whether the POS system that you have selected has back-up support. Now, if you work with a decent POS Supplier, then you can be positive that the system is going to be of a high quality when you get your hand on it for the first time, but it is always nice to know that if you do run into any issues, that somebody is going to be there who can help you out!
Easy to use:
At the same time, you may wish to try and think about whether the system that you have selected is easy to use. Café environments tend to be high-pressure environments. You will, quite often, have a person trying to fill many roles at the same time. The last thing you want to happen is to have them fiddling around with all sorts of buttons to make the system work. Not only is it going to slow everything down, which can have an impact on how quickly your customers get served, but it could also have an impact to the point where the person may end up making mistakes as they are under a lot of pressure. Any point of sale systems for cafes that you pick up should be self-explanatory. This means that you should be able to train somebody on the system in a minute or two. Any longer than that, and you are going to run into a few problems. Trust us on that one!
Of course, it is also ideal if you are able to customise the system to your specifications. This means that you should be able to play about with the various settings on the cafe POS system to ensure that you can get it to a point where it just works for your business. A cafe POS system which has no customisation options is not going to be good for you at all. It means that you will never be able to use it as efficiently as you may like.
